Meet Callie, Nadine, Ava, and Aynsley. They are four divas in this book. None of them are quite as innocent as they seem. None of them are who they think they are. And none of them are pure at heart. Plus, they are all snobbish, rude, and vain. I can put them all together; and you probably wouldn't be able to tell them apart.

In short words? There are no need to describe their character traits individually. They are all the same, just have different. If you want to know the differences, just read

It was the year 2009 when I discovered fashion blogs and go an introductory (and impromptu) crash course into the world of fashion and fashion blogging. This interest has continued growing, including a renewed interest in magazines, clothes and looking good.

It was this, and the fact that the setting is in New York City, that had me wanting to read this book. I actually thought that it might not be as interesting as the premise suggested, that it
Fashionistas (Interns #1) was a VERY boring book! It's a story about four girls who are interns at a fashion magazine. I wouldn't say the characters are are drastically different, like the blurb says, but one thing that is different about them is they are all dumb in their own ways: Aynsley is snobby and acts like she's so much better than everyone else - all she does is socialise and whinge about her fellow interns, Callie is a wannabe cool girl, not to mention a downright liar, Nicole is a stu ...more

FASHIONISTAS is the first book in a new series by Chloe Walsh.

Four very different girls come together at Couture magazine in New York City for a summer internship.

Aynsley is the spoiled rich girl, whose mom is friends with the Editor-in-Chief. Aynsley has to work at Couture or spend the summer in a remote Italian village. That thought alone makes a summer of unpaid work worth it.

Ava is a shy, invisible writer. Though she's hiding a secret none of the gir

Four very different girls, Callie, Ava, Nadine, and Aynsley, have all landed a dream summer internship at Couture Magazine. All four are drastically different, but that is what makes the story click. Aynsley is the rich socialite who only got into the program because her mother is best friends with the editor. Nadine is a no mess Philly girl full of attitude and always up for a good party. Ava is the sweet quiet girl who's never had a boyfriend, and Callie is a designer in the making from Ohio, ...more

The Interns: Fashionistas by Chloe Walsh is about four high school/ college students that are all interning at Couture magazine in New York.

One girl is from the midwest, and makes up stories to impress the others, and the last a quite nice girl that doesn't get into any trouble, yet. The Interns keeps you reading as you want to find out what will happen to these Fashionistas next(; ...more

This book, although was about my favourite pastime: Fashion, was actually quite a bore. I was expecting a fantastic read on the insides of working in the fashion biz, the woes and the achivments. Instead though, I recieved a story about a liar, a backstabber, a partyer and a typical airhead. Not my cup of tea. If you are wondering then why it took me so long to finish the book, I could not bear to read it.I read other novels instead and found myself skipping pages of 'The Interns'. Truly a disap ...more

This was a very interesting book. It had a lot drama and a ton of FASHION. It tells about the ups and downs of living in New York City, the second fashion capitol in the world. This was an amzing book overal

Ehhhh... I liked this book. It was okay. Really nothing special. Nadine was a really bratty character who kept thinking she was perfect to me. I mean authors should really make their characters likeable in a book, and Walsh really didn't to me, the only person I liked was Callie.

1 star. I survived the pink book though so give me some credit. From my POV, this wasn't exciting, all the fashion lingo and the boring life of magazine interns put me to sleep but i'd say 10% of the girls age 13+ would enjoy this book. maybe.

This book is really good because you can get a taste of how a magazine works on the inside. It's also good because it has great twists and turns that keep you interested... it's not a boring book.

I was throughly enjoying this book. I was very disappointed with the end. Yes the book is the first in a series, however did it need to end so abruptly with next to know sort of conclusion?

I don't normally read YA, but this seemed like it would be fun to read. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading the next.

This book was alright. I loved to read about how different the girl's personalities were and they still meshed so well.
It's like Jackie Collins wrote a book about the NYC fashion scene, for YA. Take a moment and soak in the horror, the horror...

It's a good read.
I don't like Callie and Nadine to be honest but the other two are my favorite characters, although Ava sort of creeps me out

Overall I like it (:
